I have 3 Windows 2000 domain controllers on my network and I am receiving FRS errors in the event log.  I found out the errors were comming from an old DC which is no longer in use.  How can I remove the Domain Controller from my DNS records so it will stop tring to replicate?

Please note: this tool has the potential to do a lot of damage to your domain, if not used correctly. Please ensure you understand exactly what your command will do before executing it.

Hope this helps!
